GETTING THE WORD OUT...
The numbers are astonishing with regards to accidental aquatic related deaths in the US. According to the CDC, in 2005, there were 3,582 fatal unintentional drownings in the United States, averaging ten deaths per day. While American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend swimming classes as the primary means of drowning prevention for children younger than 4, it's still very important to teach our children how to swim and how to be safe around any aquatic environment.
Super Splasher Aquatics is here to do just that. It's important to get the word out to parents that it's never too early to introduce children to water. Early learning can prevent later disasters. While those numbers are heartbreaking, the real tragedy is that those drownings could have been prevented with the help of a few basic steps.
We offer swim lessons to individuals 6 months and up. Our swim program is progressive and age based. All of our lessons are 30 minutes long and sessions consist of 8 classes, which follow our curriculum. They are scheduled according to the type of lessons. Lessons are scheduled from Monday-Friday from 9:00am-7:00pm, Saturdays from 10:00am-1:00pm, and Sundays 12:00pm-5:00pm.
We have four tiers of lessons:
Group swim lessons are scheduled in sessions over the course of 8 weeks year round indoors. To see the most current group session please visit our group lesson page. Our groups are small, as there are three- 6 children to one instructor, depending on the level.
In addition to our pre-scheduled group swim lessons, we will organize 'private' group lessons as well. If you have three children in the same level or friends with children in the same level, we can schedule group lessons around your schedule as well. Please contact us for more information.
Semi public swim lessons are scheduled in sessions over the course of 8 weeks year round indoors. To see the most current semi public session please visit our semi-public lesson page. There are only 2 children to one instructor.
Semi Private lessons are scheduled on an appointment basis. There are two children to one instructor. If you have two children or friend with a child at the same level as yours, you can schedule semi private lessons around your busy schedule. You will need to call the office to schedule these.
Private lessons are one on one, personally designed around your child. These lessons are built according to each individual parent's goals for their child. Purchase Private Lesson Punch Passes Here!
SAFE SPLASHER SWIM CURRICULUM:
Where SWIM, SAFETY and FUN collide to make Splashin’ Safe Swim Students!
We offer six age based levels of swimming lessons. Our Guppy level is for children ages 6-36 months. Starish through Dolphin levels are for children ages 3 and up. These descriptions are for parents in order to provide a broad description of the prerequisites and skills for each level. There are more skills involved in each level, which cannot be listed. All placements are made after an in-water evaluation, unless the parent knows the child is fearful of water or cannot put his/her face in the water. If the child is fearful, then he/she is placed in an appropriate beginner class based on his/her age.
Please always remember that swim lessons are not "drown proofing". There should always be adult supervision when children are near water - even bathtubs. All "beginner" and even experienced swimmers have the potential to panic. Swim lessons are one important aspect of promoting water safety and learning competitive strokes for your children.
GUPPIES: INTRO TO SWIMMING
This level is for children ages 6-36 months. One adult/guardian (over 18 years of age) must be in the water with the child. Helps develop swimming readiness by leading adult/guardian and child in water exploration activities with the objective of having fun and becoming comfortable in and around the water.
(Ages 3 and up) This level is for those who are brand new to swimming or who have no prior swim lessons. In this class, children learn to hold their breath, blow bubbles with mouth and nose, and put their faces in the water. They will learn basic floats and glides on front and back and learn to move independently using an assistive swim belt. They also develop a bond with and trust for their instructor, as they build the courage to jump from the stairs to their instructor.
TURTLE: BASIC SWIM SKILLS/ SWIM MOVEMENTS
This level will teach bobbing, review front and back floats and glides, and teach all the leg and arm movements of the freestyle, backstroke, elementary backstroke, and breaststroke.
STINGRAY- FREESTYLE/ELEMENTARY BACK STROKE

This level reviews treading and front and back floats and glides with recovery. It introduces surface dives. Students will learn to independently swim the backstroke and breaststroke.
DOLPHIN- STROKE REFINEMENT

The level introduces kneeling dives, rotary breathing, dolphin kicks and underwater streamline glides to prep those who may move onto a swim team program.
